It appears as if Tomomi Nishikubo is trying to make a case for bicycle trials to become an Olympic sport. Hopping onto a pentathlon course, the Canyon team member puts his spin on the hurdles, the steeple chase, the long jump, the high jump and the 100m dash. If you’ve ever ridden a trials bike, you know they won’t win a 100m dash against anything but another trials bike, but with the men’s and women’s mountain bike events in the bag, this is a way to keep your Olympic sprit high.
